Archery is hot right now. With Katniss in The Hunger Games, Hawkeye in The Avengers and now Mirabel in Disney/Pixar’s Brave… Kids are clamoring to be just like the characters they see on the big screen. Zing was way ahead of the game.
Last year my boys begged for the Zing Crossbow. This summer, they have an entire line of bows available. We received the ZX Crossbow and the Zip Bak Bow. My boys were really excited to rip open that package.

One thing we learned the hard way? Don’t point the bow at the roof and expect the darts to come back to you. Thankfully it’s always windy where we live and within a day those darts finally fell onto the deck. Crisis averted.

What I really liked about the toys was how sturdy they are. They get used and abused daily in our house and the look and perform like new. I also love the price points. At $5 – $20, these are priced right for a family looking for some summer fun.
I have to admit, the boys aren’t the only ones who love these bows. I constantly sneak up on the husband and try to scare him by zipping one past his head (don’t try this at home kids!). He usually retaliates or mutters a few choice words under his breath. 😉 What’s the point of reviewing toys if I just let the kids have all the fun!
